Apparently Lapsus$ is also responsible for stealing almost 200 GB of
sensitive data from Samsung. They've been busy.

So, this just arrived in my in-box

Now I know this is a scam and probably a phishing attempt.
Considering the high prices of food and gas, there are many
who look at this and say "Oh good, I can use a helping hand."
They may very well be tempted to click on that tempting link to
        Check what you won
Don't do it regardless of how much help you may need.
This will only make things worse not better.
Do what I did with this email,
Report it as SPAM

I get stuff like this, some supposedly from a popular Financial advice and deals guy, but he doesn't do anything like this, but many will just see the name and dumbly open it to see what it is about. I also get some supposedly having come from Microsoft, there are just too many scams/phishing attempts out there.

I use MailWasherPro, it downloads a very small part of the email (in plain text), it can be set to use SpamCop, SpamHaus and other vetting tools so it is very effective vetting process. At the end of the vetting and my own decisions, I have it open my email client and I download the remainder.

Cyber threats and the Ukraine conflict

https://youtu.be/m4ONgmR8YxY
A rundown of cyber threats emerging from the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
https://blog.avast.com/cyber-threats-and-the-ukraine-conflict-avast
Cyber threats usually inflict a financial toll which is terrible and needs to end.
The unprovoked attack on the people of Ukraine is killing innocent men, women,
children, and animals.
It’s reducing the cities to rubble and destroying a people's way of life.
This must stop and it must stop NOW.
